Given that you have shipped countless of packages, I still don't get why you are complaining about this.
Shipping are done in blocks of 0.5kg each so it will often be rounded up to the highest 0.5kg because it makes no sense to round down to 1.5kg if your package weighs 1.75kg. And this is on their website :
You should try shipping with Borderlinx instead.

If you shipped 6 boxes of 1.1kg to CGW, they'll charge you 9.0kg (1.5 * 6 = 9kg).
The same 6 boxes shipped to Borderlinx only comes to 5.5kg (1.1 * 6 = 6.6 ~ 7kg)

CGW rounds up the weight of *each package*; but BL only rounds up the final weight instead.

The only disadvantage of BL, is you need a Citibank CC.
